Is the NoSleep subreddit also tied to the podcast? Or did one spawn the other, but not related.

In the spring of 2010, a new forum appeared on Reddit.com. It was called “Nosleep” and the concept of this forum (or “subreddit”) was to be a place for people to post original scary stories about frightening experiences. It was an online version of telling spooky stories around the campfire.

A year later, as Nosleep was growing at a rapid pace, one member named Matt Hansen proposed the idea of doing a podcast where some of the top stories from Nosleep would be narrated in audiobook style.

Interesting. I listen to the NoSleep podcast every week now (some of them are very long), and I like the stories. I knew some of them probably came from Nosleep, but its weird that they have enough content to do 3-4 stories every week.

You'll have to see if they do a reading of the post being made into the movie.

The nosleep podcast draws from a few different sources but it started from the subreddit.
